Stepping Lightly on Australia

“The ideal book for anyone wanting to escape the crowd, big resorts and expensive accommodation. A detailed guide to the natural and most beautiful parts of Australia.” Review by The Canberra Chronicle. 

Take a guided tour of Australia’s World Heritage areas, national parks, wildlife parks and sanctuaries, and learn about the best places to go bushwalking, bird-watching, wildflower gazing, cycling, diving and whale watching. This book is packed with ideas and information on “traceless travel”, using your own itinerary or in a group.

This travel guide is full of information about environmentally sensitive tour groups, properties and organizations and includes chapters describing a hand-picked list of the best tours and accommodation available.

This book is currently out of print but is available in public and school libraries in Australia and on discount book sales sites.
